Wally, check your emails. I hope we may be able to work out a deal if the price is right.
Don Subritzky phoned to tell me that he's very keen to see this Hudson preserved, and he has made the suggestion to me that he would be willing to contribute a little money towards the cost of buying it if others on the forum also put up some money in a special forum project fund to SAVE THE HUDSON. If we can raise the money to purchase this Hudson caravan Don is willing to house it within his significant collection on behalf of the forum. And maybe down the track if we continue to raise funds it can be restored to fuselage status.
This is the plan, it sounds very feasible, and I think achieveable if enough people get involved and can contribute money and perhaps time to the cause.
What do you all think? Are you keen to get involved in a Forum Hudson project? I have emailed Wally to ask exactly how much is being asked by the current owner.

Like trying to get info from a dentist, you have to pull all the teeth. Aviation has permanent desire not to let go any info. I red a few posts a few mouths ago the person wouldn't release any info, on a promise. The sad thing is the promise was made to a dead person. It is OK to share info, you will not go to prison and if lucky, maybe collect your $200. If you or anyone has any info on abandoned, stored, damaged, for sale airframes(good or damaged), don't be afraid, I definitely don't bite. It is amazing the number of "secret" aircraft out there, that people for some reason don't want to share info. PS, I have tried wally and no reply to ant attempt to contact.
